"The most beautiful moment, for which he would have time speed up, is the moment he says 'one', this man explodes, and he feels that he is flying." A show on a TV station backed by Saudi Prince Alaweed shows young children being taught to hate Jews, referring to them as "apes and pigs".

Another program on the same station asks a father about what he is teaching his son: "I am already preparing him for martyrdom, either mine or his. He asks me: If I carry out an operation and blow myself up, will Allah give me a car, a rifle to shoot with, toys? I answer him, ‘You will get everything you ask for.’

An April 2002 program featured Professor Adel Sadeq, head of the psychiatry faculty in a Cairo University talking about Islamic martyrs reaching a "height of ecstasy and happiness".

"The height of ecstasy and happiness, and I am talking to you as a professional, a psychiatrist, comes the moment: ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, and then he presses the button to blow himself up."

"The most beautiful moment, for which he would have time speed up, is the moment he says 'one', this man explodes, and he feels that he is flying."
